Lesson Plans

Upload your plans on Monday morning (or over the weekend if you come to school) to Place plans in the appropriately dated folder. I gave you the crumb trail in last week's JMQ Flash, but if you need extra help, ask Dara or me to show you how to save. Remember, start with your last name, underscore, and then put the subject.

Teachers as Writers: The Power of Modeling

Writers' Workshop Modeling

Teachers teach good writing through modeling. This thirty minute video is excellent. Every teacher who teaches writing needs to watch it this week. The author of this Capstone Professional Development book tells us how to focus instructional modeling within the framework of Writers' Workshop. Let me know if this is a book you would like Shanda or me to purchase for our Capstone Library for teachers. It will not be audio, but it will be available to all digitally if we purchase it for our campus. Please discuss what you learned from the video in your grade level meetings this week.
